SOFTSWISS Invests in Largest European Social Casino

SOFTSWISS, a seasoned global iGaming technology provider with over 15 years of experience, has acquired a substantial stake in Ously Games GmbH, the innovative force behind Europe’s fastest-growing social casino

Following these investments, SOFTSWISS collaborated with German company Ously Games GmbH to create an innovative software solution for social casinos, reflecting current trends in the iGaming sector.

Social casinos represent a burgeoning segment in online entertainment, blending popular casino games with social networking elements. Unlike traditional casinos, they operate without real-money gambling, using virtual currency for gameplay. Revenue for social casinos mainly comes from the sale of virtual goods, enhancing gameplay without financial stakes.

The business model of launching a social casino is free from licensing requirements and advertising restrictions, and it continues to expand globally each year. According to conservative estimates from Business Research Insights, the global market for social casino games is expected to reach €10 billion by 2030. Additionally, approximately 85 million people worldwide engage in daily play at social casinos, as reported by the Australian Communications and Media Authority.

The largest by the number of slot games European social casino,, provided by Ously Games GmbH, has seen its player base triple since the beginning of 2023, surpassing 700 thousand players.  With a collection of over 3,000 games from almost 40 providers, the casino reached a one million euro annual turnover.
